Computer keeps freezing and or turning off

I had problems with the freezing and it turning itself off on my old hard drive, so i replaced my hard drive and for some reason it is still happening, so than i go and get a different power supply thinking that was the problem, and nope it still does it. I try and get into my BIOS and it freezes, assuming it doesn't shut off as soon as I hit the delete button. What is it that I can do if anything, without having to go and buy a new motherboard?

Whenever i play a game for more than five minutes my computer shuts itself off. no freezing, no blue screen of death, it just turns off.

Test your PSU or replace it if your power supply units fan is not working your PSU is faulty

One bad lead can cause a computer to continue on a cycle or to shutdown or fail to detect/ boot up

Test all leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions,IDE,SATA

the leads from your motherboard to your hard drive make sure they have a secure connection and are not faulty or just replace them there probably old and faulty

make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure connections and are not faulty or just replace them they are probably old and faulty ?
hope this helps

After using the setup DVD the windows boot screen appears with the green bar travelling across the bar then it just freezes up. Tried to crash out and cannot, tried to change every option on the reload and...

If the old hard drive failed where the computer locked up I would suspect problems with the computer. It is possible that the new hard drive has issues. As far as compatibility, there are very few problems with hard drives, as this is all but unheard of. What keeps this from happening is the plugs are different on different hard drive interfaces, so bottom line is it wont let you plug in the wrong type of drive, as the plug wont fit. I would suggest you go into the setup program, and choose the default settings for the hardware. This can solve lots of problems. Now if the computer was crashing with the old hard drive you could have computer problems. One of the most common is dust and lint inside blocking the airflow to the computers processor. It is a good idea to have your laptop professionally cleaned internally if it is locking up, for no apparent cause, I would say that 80% of the time this is the only problem when a laptop is locking up. You wouldn't believe the build up these get inside. Good luck with it.

My Gateway GT4010 PC keeps rebooting itself before

Try replacing the hard drive cable. If that doesn't fix the problem, then you may have bad RAM, bad motherboard or a bad power supply. Sounds like a hardware issue and not software. try booting your computer in safe mode since it doesn't load all the device drivers. If it still reboots then you'll have to keep swapping parts and booting up the computer to isolate the problem.

My multimadia hdd enclosure keeps switching itself on and off and also freezing whilst playing films in avi. It's 8 months old and half of the 500g is still free

These are common problems for media player drives.

You should first check to see if there is a firmware update for it

If not then apart from try to take it back there is not much you can do i am afraid

Acer apire 3000 keeps freezing!

The first, best thing to do is to back up your data and do a system restore. Acer's have the restore function usually built into their acer system management software.

Restoring the computer will solve most issues. If you keep having issues after the restore you probably have a hardware error like a bad hard drive or bad memory.

Be sure to back up any important data as the restore will erase everything from the hard drive and set it back to the way it came from the factory

Good luck!

Yellow light?

Tre, save early, save often, save many. I have seen, heard and experienced external hard drives failing. It is a good habit to use the "usb device safe removal tool" the green arrow on the task bar. When the device is safely removed, turn it off. When you need the drive again...turn it on save files, safely remove device, turn it off. Sometimes the turning on and off of the computer with the drive hooked up can cause issues over time. Anyway hope that helps. Good Luck. Tim
